The Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is guaranteed to have graced your Instagram feed; the beautiful blue packaging, combined with the rich, hydrating formula, has helped make this one of the most raved about products in the beauty industry. Keep reading to know why I think this deserves all the hype…
This mask is available exclusively at Sephora or through the Summer Fridays website and costs 2.25 ounces for $48 or 1 ounce for $25. The co-founders of the brand created this mask to transform dry, dull skin into a hydrated, glowy complexion — even on the longest plane rides. And it works!
This is my go-to when I am feeling tired or stressed or when I am not having the best skin day. If I am enjoying a no-makeup day, you’ll be sure to see me rocking the Jet Lag Mask! When wearing this mask, my skin looks extra plump and dewy, and it leaves me feeling intensely moisturized. My skin feels softer and smoother, and I even notice that my skin tone looks more even after.
Vitamin C brightens, green tea soothes, and chestnut extract exfoliates. I have sensitive skin and love how gently yet effectively this noncomedogenic formula calms, hydrates, and enhances my skin. The small amount of peppermint oil infuses the mask with a subtle, minty scent, which adds to the relaxing, spa-like effect. It is also important to note that the mask does not contain sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or any other unclean ingredients.
I am still a little unclear about how much product I should be applying. In all of the advertisements, Marianna and Lauren can be seen with a thick white layer all over their face, but I find it very difficult to achieve this opacity, regardless of how much I use. When I do apply a thicker layer during the day, it feels stiff and pills, which is one thing to be aware of.
My favorite thing about this mask is its versatility, and I think the opportunity to multi-mask makes it worth the money. First, you can leave the product on for 10 minutes before patting off the excess with a warm, damp cloth, resulting in a glowy complexion. For deeper hydration, apply a thicker layer, and leave it on overnight; you can rinse it off when you wash your face in the morning, and your skin will be extra smooth, soft, and supple. For a flawless makeup base, you can also blend a thin layer into the skin, almost like a primer. Regardless of how you use this mask, you can apply it all over the face, on dry patches, or only to your under-eye area.
I am so happy I purchased this mask during my trip to Selfridge’s — so happy that I even purchased a second tube with this Summer Fridays Merry & Brighter set, which is my top holiday recommendation. If you have dry skin and room to splurge on a skincare product, then I think you will love the Jet Lag Mask.
